I thought it might be fun to check-in and let each other know what fabulous Ebooks we’re reading!

For me, reading one book at a time just doesn’t cut it! LOL! I’m usually reading between 5 and 6 books at once. Seriously! Depends on what kind of mood I’m in as to what I’m reading. Also, I’ve always got included in that mix at least one, usually a couple of, non-fiction books too!

RG2E Peeps: Let’s Show our Love for RG2E Featured Author Gordon Kirkland, Who’s Waiting for a Liver Transplant

TGIF, RG2E Peeps!!!

Last year at this time, my superfab friend and fellow WG2E Team Member, Gordon Kirkland, and I were celebrating each of us making it onto Amazon’s Movers and Shakers List for the first time! 🙂

Literally, it was the same night, after we’d each been featured on the fabulous blog, ENT (Ereader News Today), that we were Facebook Messaging back and forth hootin’ and hollerin’ as we watched each of our books soar up the list. I’ll never forget that night…

Now, in honor of Gordon, who’s currently waiting on a liver transplant, and no longer able to hang with us here on The RG2E, I thought it would be wonderful if we could help him this holiday season.

***Note: You can read about his journey here:

And also keep tabs on him on his Facebook Page.

Here’s the book that just one year ago, we were watching climb higher and higher up Amazon’s Movers and Shakers List:

On Amazon ($2.99)

I luuuvvv this book!!!  In fact, here’s the 5-Star Review I posted after reading it last January:

Over The Moon Full of Christmas Magic!!!, January 13, 2012
By
D. “D. D. Scott” (LA PORTE, IN, United States) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: The Plight Before Christmas (Kindle Edition)

This was just a totally magical holiday read from page one all the way to ‘The End’…in fact, I didn’t really want it to end!

I laughed and laughed, and will never think of snow plow drivers and chestnuts in quite the same way!!!

You rock, Gordon Kirkland, and are seriously one of the funniest writers ever!!!

It’s one of those books that will forever change the way you think about Christmas…in a very heart-warming but LMAO kinda way.

Just about two weeks ago, I received this note from Gordon’s wife Diane:

Hello: I’m wondering if you could please pass this message along to your groups. Gordon speaks fondly of his work with you.

Hello:
This is Diane Kirkland, Gordon Kirkland’s wife writing. As you may know, Gordon is facing a serious life-threatening health issue, and is awaiting a transplant. The side effects of the condition have meant that he cannot concentrate on writing, and this has definitely not helped his morale. In addition, being unable to take part in any book marketing this year has been quite frustrating for him.

I’m writing to ask for your help. At this time last year, The Plight Before Christmas was heading for #1 on the Amazon Parenting & Family Humor Best Sellers List. If many of you could find five to ten friends to purchase either the paperback or Kindle version of The Plight Before Christmas it would be a real boost to his morale, heading into the holiday season.

As one reviewer said, “If the stress of the holiday season starts to gnaw at you, take some time and read this book. It will have you laughing until tears form in your eyes. I told a friend about this book, and she totally enjoyed it also.”

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and considering my request on behalf of Gordon.

Diane Kirkland

Here’s our chance, RG2E Peeps, to help Gordon and his family this holiday season…

The Ebooks D. D. Scott is E-reading and Would Luuuvvv to Ebook Gift to RG2E Peeps!!!

I get messages and emails a bunch from my D. D. Scott-ville readers asking me “What are u reading, D. D.?”

So here’s the scoop on not only what I’m reading, but what I’m sooo gaga over I’ve just gotta talk about and Ebook Gift to you!!!

For this month’s D. D. Scott’s Totally Gaga Over Ebook…

Two of my fave authors have done it again with a new Ebook Release I can’t wait to dive into…

Ruth and Michael Harris

On Amazon

$2.99

Okay…note from D. D….Thrillers scare the sh*t outta me, and for that reason, I usually don’t read them…BUT…Ruth and Michael’s books have these A-mazing helluva international ride element and Bond-like “thrill” to ’em, along with the super scary stuff too, and I simply can’t put ’em down.

Apparently, my superfab friend and NY Time’s Bestselling Author Bob Mayer feels the same…here’s what he said about this book:

“OVERRIDE delivers the goods: thrills, gut-churning suspense, nightmarish terror. Ruth and Michael Harris have delivered another great read and sure bestseller. I dare you to put it down!” — Bob Mayer, former Green Beret and million-copy bestselling author of AREA 51

Anyhoo…I adore Ruth and Michael Harris – Ruth is also a NY Times Bestseller and Michael was the first person to welcome the Beatles to the US as a PR Exec for The Ed Sullivan show…cool, right?! – and I can’t wait to Ebook Gift y’all what’s sure to be this husband-and-wife team’s next Bestselling Book!!!

Here’s the description:

OVERRIDE is based on secret, real-life psychiatric experiments known as MK-ULTRA and conducted by the CIA in the 1960’s.

When the experiment—called the Lullaby Room in the novel—is deemed a failure, respected psychiatrist, Victor Ressid, is left bankrupt and embittered, abandoned to his own strange sexual obsessions and fantasies of revenge.

Zeb Marlowe, a scarred survivor of the experiment, tormented and invisibly wounded, and Jai Jai Leland, the intelligent, beautiful widow of a man who didn’t survive, must uncover the secret conspiracy at the heart of the government and stop a nuclear threat that puts the country’s security at risk.

Written in 2012 with a contemporary feel, OVERRIDE is set during the paranoid 1970’s. The novel takes place on the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, in Ireland, the Philippines, Canada, Washington, DC and in a buried underground torture chamber located on a secluded private estate near the Mexico-Belize border.
